Message from Wellington Market Management
It is with great regret that we are closing our market, in line with government guidelines on COVID-19. We are hopeful that by taking this action to reduce social interaction, we are able to unite together and pass the uncertainty that these times bring.
We are a small local business that houses over 43 small businesses; all of whom are also affected by Coronavirus. The impact on day-to-day living has become extremely difficult and the strain of lowering footfall has forced us to take control of the situation; in the interests of our staff, traders and the general public. Though we have a small number of food stalls, we are not specifically a food market. We feel that it will not be in your best interest to keep these running, based on the guidelines on social distancing and also the dramatic effect that you have seen in the UK supply chain industry.
Our traders are not a major Supermarket or Food Business with resource to offer services by takeaway or delivery; they are all self-employed and offer services where you are at the heart of our community. We hope in the future that you too will make a place for us in your hearts by supporting local businesses and shopping local.
We will continue to update our Facebook and website with any new developments. Please stay safe and look after one another.
Herlander Alcobia, Market Manager
